  • Description:

    Another well-done coin by the Perth Mint, the fifth addition of the 12-coin series, Australian Lunar Gold 2013 Snake coin never lasts long in our inventory! Giving a head nod to the ancient fortune-telling system, the Perth Mint started the Australian Lunar Series with series I in 1996. The Perth Mint had no idea what phenomenon they had started! The Australian Lunar Series I took off in popularity, with its unique juxtaposition of a beautiful matte finish and a mirror-like proof finish on the main designs. Collectors even admired the mint-sealed capsules each coin was packaged in, conveniently removing a step off of the collector's list for an airtight capsule.

    The Australian Lunar Gold 2013 Snake is guaranteed to weigh 1/4 ounce of .9999 pure gold and falls nothing short of the Perth Mint's famous reputation of coin minting. Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II is the main attraction on the obverse and also contains the coin's legal tender value. The reverse displays a large snake, suspiciously slithering through reeds and weeds, perhaps locating its next prey. The Chinese symbol for Snake and "Year of the Snake" are delicately etched into the coin's surface. Despite its vile reputation of embodying cunningness, malice, and darkness, it is viewed as good luck to find a snake in your garden. In ancient times, the symbol of a snake wrapping itself around a rabbit was good luck and indicated wealth. Those born under the year of the snake have a much different temperament than what their zodiac animal represents. They are known to have wisdom beyond their years and great wit. They are also calm, sensitive, gifted in literature and the arts. Don't let this numismatic opportunity slither on by!
